SEATTLE -- A new report shows Washington state is doing a good job collecting information about students and how they are doing in school. But state policymakers have yet to take the next step toward ensuring parents, teachers and school officials can access and analyze the data in a way that would improve student learning.
The Data Quality Campaign does an annual assessment of how states are doing at collecting, analyzing and distributing student data. They rated Washington near the middle of the pack.
The group notes that Washington is one of only a few states connecting teacher effectiveness with the education schools they attended.
But they want to see the systems for student data improved. One goal is to set up an "early warning system" so parents and kids know if they are in danger of not graduating from high school.
